I'm moving this to the diagnosis section. Would you please answer all the questions at the top of the page so we can get a better idea of your tank set up and history? Thanks :)

My black moor does that exact same stuff, and has since last March. I think he just likes harassing my butterfly. Mine tends to happen the most during feeding. I found it's pretty harmless actually, he's just a little...annoyance.

ha I feel like an idiot now as I put him back in the tank 6 hours ago and he's like best buddies with them all maybe he thought he had to fight for everything but now he's spent enough time away he's like oh hang on where's all guys I'm so alone so now he's back in with everyone he's lime guys you wouldn't believe where I've bin he's more relaxed as well at feeding time he eat the same as the others if not a little bit more so its all good lol for now I just hope he does'nt start again as all my fish are friendly they shall there food bizarre u no I guess its instinct or something or maybe its because there from the same place (maidenhead aquatics NOT PETS AT HOME NOT AFTER LAST TIME) but whatever it was I'm glad he may have realised that he's nom welcomed so kindly in this large tank :)

How long has this tank been running? Showing no nitrates means that your tank might possibly not be cycled.

Also, your tank is under filtered. You want at least 5x lph with a canister but preferably 10x. So at least 1750 lph or 3500 lph.

its bin running since Sept last year I checked the nitrates after I did a water change as before they where reading 40.0 and does that mean I'm gonna need another canister then :(
